This stuff is killing me.

I wish i could switch over to batches, but I have never really seen any. When I do come across them, they run out very quickly.

The thought of just sitting there for hours doing surveys just makes me feel exhausted. My body wants to stop.

- take a break (not always possible I know)
- have something mindless but enjoyable to do at your desk in between surveys/while waiting for more work. Mindless enjoyable stuff will distract you from the hellish drudgery.

I use to get this all the time up until today. My new stratagy is to think about how lucky I am to be working from home. How some people deal with rude customers or have hard labor blue collar jobs or do degrading work. I also simply refuse to do work that takes too long for little pay. Simply saying "nope" to a hit that I feel isn't worth the time helps me. Also, I start thinking about the stuff I need to buy, like new glasses and my phone bill.

Also, eat something while you do hits. Burnout with this type of work can be mostly mental but it also is physical.
